Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The book covers...key foundations of anatomy and physiology; focusing primarily on the muscloskeletal system, as well as providing a basic introduction to the body systems. Detailed but simple diagrams illsutrate joint movement and muscle structure, and photographs show the range of normal movement for joints and limbs."

    Sandy Fritz's Massage Therapy Review

    I thought this book was very informational and aided me in my preparation for my board exams. The questions and answers also assisted me in researching all possible questions before answering. There were many times I knew the answer because I didn't know what the other items were. I think this helped me to study everything not just the possible answer. I would recommed others to get this book. The book coves everthing form Anatomy and Physiology to ethics and the depth of the questions I think helped me to look at the different ways a question can be asked.
